He then restructured the bureaucracy in government, reopened quarries, mines and trade routes and began imperial construction projects of a type and calibre that had not been undertaken since the time of the Middle Kingdom. This building program climaxed in the construction of the last pyramid built by native Egyptian rulers.

Indus Valley Civilization: People believed that Indian civilization began with the Aryans, but the discovery of the Indus Valley Civilization proved that a highly developed urban civilization flourished in India much before the arrival of the Aryans. Historians named it 'The Indus Valley Civilization', but it was also called the Harappan culture as the first site of this civilization was discovered in Harappa. Research scholars believe that this civilization has spread over an area of 1,300,000 square kilometers, which is more than that of any ancient civilization known so far. It is said that The Indus Valley Civilization existed between 3250 B.C. and 2750 B.C., However, recently Indian archeologists using the technique of radio carbon dating, are inclined to believe that the period of Harappan culture extended from 2500 B.C.
